A Voice For Connecticut's Delinquent Girls

Sep 5, 2017

Juvenile justice reform often focuses on changing a system in which the majority of delinquents are boys. But how do courts and community providers address the needs of girls?

This hour, we find out what advocates have learned from a new report on girls in Connecticut's juvenile justice system. 

Later, we also check in with Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane. Have recent reforms “emboldened juveniles” to take advantage of the state’s justice system? 

Kane says yes. The public defender’s office disagrees.

Coming up, we hear both sides and take your calls, tweets, and emails.
